A 2004 dispute over property damage caused by roofing repairs is up for trial Monday.

The plaintiff is seeking nearly $200,000 for damages he says were caused by lax roofers and rain. The trial is set to open at 9 a.m. before Madison County Circuit Judge Andy Matoesian.

According to the complaint, plaintiff Ronald G. Bottens hired Eagle Window & Siding Inc., an East Alton company, to work on his roof in August 2002. The company began tearing shingles off in September that year.

Bottens contends that Eagle's crews put down a tarp to shield the bare areas only after rain had leaked through the roof, causing damage to the inside of his home.

The plaintiff is asking for $195,147.04 for the damage and living expenses. He also is asking for costs.

Bottens is represented by Tori Lynn Cox of Reed, Armstrong, Gorman, Mudge & Morrissey P.C. Eagle is represented by Ted Harvey of Freeark, Harvey, Mendillo, Dennis, Wuller, Cain and Murphy P.C.

The case is Madison case number 04-L-784.
